Electric Boat has 17 total confirmed cases of coronavirus, including four new ones, according to company president Kevin Graney.

On the company podcast, EB Landing, Graney announced one of the company's senior vice presidents, Kurt Hesch, is one of the four new COVID-19 cases.

Hesch is asymptomatic and will be working from home as precautionary measure, Graney said.

Hesch was tested for the coronavirus after Graney tested positive.
